AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Wedding facilities): The elegant staircase from the mezzanine to the lobby, reminds me that Tom and Daisy, characters in The Great Gatsby, were married here.
This restored 1905 hotel is the epitome of ornate, historical elegance. Rooms are beautifully appointed with mahogany furniture and high-thread-count linens but some units are on the small side. Check out the Rathskeller Room in the basement. Appointed with ornate Rookwood tiles, intricately tooled leather decorations and ceramic tile images of storks, the room exudes an almost mystical, brooding Teutonic atmosphere. This hotel is an indescribably beguiling little nook nestled in downtown Louisville. This hotel has one of those old mail drop systems on each floor by the elevator. The really fascinating aspect here is that the system still works just as it did one hundred years ago. Smoke free premises. 321 units, some two bedrooms. 11 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

The entrance is gorgeous along with all of the chandeliers. The hotel was very elegant but has a fun atmosphere as well.
Pros: The staff were all great and were very helpful. We also got a tour of the ballrooms from one of the members of the security team.
Cons: N/A

Pros: Free shuttle (tipped the driver equivalent of cab fare) to most anywhere you want to go. Valet/shuttle driver was the most knowledgeable person on area attractions, restaurants, etc. Ask for hotel employee!
Cons: No concierge. Front desk staff knew very little about area. Surprised that Bartenders were the least friendly and helpful of any we encountered in town re: bourbon/whiskey selections. Just an ugraded Hilton. I'll stay at the Brown next trip!

Pros: This is a very old historic hotel in downtown louisville, so there is small elevators but the rooms were beautiful, the oak door was so heavy I couldnt hardly open it. the only issue was it was new years and cabs were scarce
Cons: hard to find the door tucked in a side street
